This absolutely delicious heart-melter of a dog is looking for the very best of companion homes!
Sharky is a 9-10 year old female heading dog who has retired now and would make a wonderful best buddy for an older person, or someone who would like a relaxed smoocher to spend evenings with on the couch.
Good with other dogs, will tell pups off fairly if they are being annoying. Great with kids, loves all people and attention. Sharky can be left loose around the section and be trusted to just stay there in the sun all day. She should be fine with cats, although the family cat tends to steer clear of the working dogs. Sharky has not ever been an inside dog, but she is clean and tidy in her kennel and shouldn’t take long to learn. Great recall, keeps in beside you when she’s walking, happy to just be near you but also fine left alone (although she would love a person who is around as much as possible). Up to date with flea/worm treatments and vaccinations.
Sharky has arthritis now due to her age and working career and so would probably appreciate some joint supplements or medication. She’d love a nice soft bed by the fire. Due to an accident working cattle, Sharky is a bit wobbly when she walks (like she’s a bit tipsy) but this doesn’t seem to worry her at all and she still gets around fine at her own pace, although she isn’t able to jump up anymore. Owners are very sad to see this special girl go but would like to find her a home where she gets all of the love and attention she deserves.
